Bombs in Ankara
It might be because local servers are overloaded rather than a sinister reason. Remember when the bombs went off in London mobile phones were overloaded and if we had facebook and twitter then I expect they and other social media platforms would have been overloaded.

any theories re culprits?

Supposedly 2 suicide bombers. but to early to tell .

It was a peace rally supported by the left leaning groups, unions and the HDP, alledgedly the same M.O. as the Suruç suicide bomb in Province of Şanlıurfa in July were 32 died It was at the time claimed by Daesh.

The HDP never accepted this explanation for the Suruç bombing nor did the well know whistle blower Fuat Avni who both blamed it on a false flag operation by the ruling party to sow chaos ,to either bring in martial law, with them in charge, or to deny the opposition votes in the election by portraying themselves as the only party strong enough to contain threats and maintain stability .

Bombs in Ankara
Many users in Turkey were unable to access Twitter on Oct. 10, the social networking site said, after at least 86 people were killed in the capital Ankara in twin bombings.

It was not immediately clear if the problem was related to the attack, but the Turkish government has moved before to block or limit social media sites - including Twitter - at sensitive times, prompting accusations of censorship.

"Users in Turkey are reporting issues accessing Twitter in many areas. We're investigating and hope full service will be restored soon," Twitter's @policy account tweeted in English and Turkish.

In July, a Turkish court ordered a ban on publishing images of a deadly suicide bombing near the border with Syria on all print, visual and online media, including Twitter.

Turkey's parliament in April approved legislation to tighten control over the Internet by allowing the government to block websites without prior judicial authorization.

The government had blocked Twitter and YouTube in March 2014.

Exactly what happend after the Suruç bombing

Turkey briefly blocked access to Twitter on Wednesday, in an effort to curtail the spread of images of a bombing that killed 32 people earlier this week. As the state-run Anadolu Agency reports, today's move comes after a court ruling called for graphic footage of the incident to be banned across social media and broadcast networks. The court added that websites that do not comply must be blocked. Authorities lifted the ban later Wednesday, after Twitter complied.

Bombs in Ankara
The Missus says the "alternative" news and social media are full of personal accounts by survivors of the Ankara bombing that there was no police presence before the rally. These accounts were allegedly by people who had participated in previous demonstrations and rallies and the police "robocops" (riot police) previously were always out in force.

Reports also say that police hampered rescue efforts even stopping ambulances trying to get to the scene.

The 4 minute video at the bottom of this page shows NO POLICE anywhere even in the aftermath of the bombing.

Hi,

I've just watched an interview by a Turkish academic working here in the UK-Dr Bahar Basar. She said that people are becoming convinced that this atrocity was carried out with or by the current government along with right wing supporters.

The most damning evidence is the total lack of police presence before the bombs. She went on to say that even if ten people get together to demonstrate about anything in Turkey then there is always a large police presence-but a huge rally by supporters of the HDP and left wing groups attracted virtually no police controls?

Even if the AKP actually win the November 1st election then this trouble will only escalate-Turkey and it's people are in for a rough ride-and all for one man's ambition and greed.
